Welcome to the Web site for the Library Copyright Alliance (LCA), whose members include the American Library Association, the Association of Research Libraries, and the Association of College and Research Libraries.

Content and resources found on this site reflect the voice of LCA and its members on copyright and related intellectual property laws and treaties, nationally and internationally. Intellectual property laws are currently undergoing major changes in response to the growth in the use of digital formats for works. Accordingly, the members of LCA communicate with lawmakers both here and abroad to express that these changes enhance, rather than harm, the ability of libraries and information professionals to serve the needs of the general public.
